Had an amazing time. Food was wonderful. Place was immaculate
Unique dishes, great flavors, and an excellent menu.
Very good experience, only thing was that the table for two was a little small
Everything was perfect
Tried Temple for the first time for my son's high school graduation....perfect place for a celebration. Menu had great choices and food was delish! We went on a Thursday night @ 8pm and wasn't too crowded so very attentive staff. Love the large round tables so we could easily converse. Upscale Chinese but worth the price, try the Grand Marnier Shrimp and Lobster Fried Rice, best we ever had. If you like Peking you will love, love, love Temple.
First time diners and will definitely be back! Food was fresh and delicious and the service was impeccable. Could not have been a better experience. Definitely recommend if you’re in the area.
It was a perfect dinner night out from start to finish! Our server, Dylan , was awesome . He described the evening specials and was very obliging as far as getting us beverages and ice refills . Our appetizers were wonderful - chicken lettuce cups and spring rolls . Our entrees were absolutely delicious and served piping hot !
The desserts- bananas flambé, chocolate lava cake , and creamy chocolate ice cream were outstanding! Such an interesting touch to sprinkle the ice cream with toasted sesame seeds- surprisingly delicious!
This restaurant and our server both deserve five stars!
Took our son for birthday dinner. Food was great and will be going back again
Food was delish and our server Dylan was a doll. Will definitely be back!
Waiter John was awesome. So was the food!! Best gourmet Asian around.
Fantastic food!!!!! Great service!
You can’t beat the price for that quality of food.
Awesome best Chinese food around
Other than one very bad experience, always consistent. No issues with food or service. My husband and I have our 2 go-to entrees which never disappoint; scallops in garlic sauce and filet with spinach and mushrooms. Wish they would bring back the salad with chicken or beef skewers.
One issue that always comes up, as a twosome they always want to put us at high-top by the bar. It doesn't matter what we request or when we make the reservation.
Ordered crab soup....fishy tasting sent it back. They took off the bill. Dirty restrooms, can only imagine what the kitchen was like..dirty floors...dimly lit...
Saw staff blowing their nose and not washing / sanitizing hands. Pretty gross.
We won't be back.
Bottom line. Dirty, overpriced and suspect freshness of food....server was pleasant but disappeared for long stretches.
Great Peking Duck. We sat outside and enjoyed the food. It’s a BYOB so that can be more economical.
It is overrated. Good thing we got appetizers and our grandkids were well behaved -- 9 people. Otherwise it would have been a disaster. Exceptionally Slow at getting dinners out. More concerned about the takeouts than the diners in restaurant. Sad.
On a good note quality and portions of food were excellent.
Would we go back? Maybe, kids liked it.
Very poor service. I have been to this restaurant 15-30 times. The food is good, the service has gone completely downhill. From bus to waitress to manager to owner. Sorry to say wont be returning.
First time at Temple! Thoroughly enjoyed. Very generous portions. Love that it is a BYOB
Place is nice but getting very expensive. Lobster fried rice $39.00. Come on ! A little crazy ?
Love the food and that they have so many gluten-free items!
Brought my Daughter and my three Granddaughters for dinner. Food, service outstanding. Would highly recommended.
The food was great and so was the service. Our waitress took very good care of us, and so did the rest of the staff. Dumplings were great and so was the best of our order.
The food was great, but they really rushed us out! I understand with Covid you don’t have hours to dine, but our reservation was late and the restaurant was pretty empty, so I didn’t appreciate feeling rushed like that. Probably would have ordered dessert but was annoyed at that point. Aside from that, it was a great value for the quality of food!
I enjoyed the fried rice with shrimp and chicken
Excellent meal and excellent service. Highly recommend
The wonton soup was the best part of the meal. Spring rolls, mango chicken and chicken with broccoli all had an obscene amount of oil. Very tough ribs. Attentive and friendly server, Reagan made up for the disappointing food.
Delicious. Fresh and clean cooking. Great service and cozy atmosphere
They never disappoint! Hard to believe, but the food gets better each and every time we go there. We can’t wait to go back again, soon.
Food delicious. A little disappointed with my Grand Marnier Prawns. Five prawns and nothing else with it for $27.
Food was excellent, didn’t realize it was BYOB (our fault) but wished they had some wonton chips on the table while we waited for our appetizers, they took quite a bit to come out.
Always great food and service. Never had a bad meal here. We go to this restaurant very frequently.
The server was not very attentive or friendly. It seem to me that she didn’t want to be there. Didn’t refill the water . Maybe she was having a bad day. However in these times we all need to be patient and kind.
Third time here. I love this place! Service was excellent.
The food was amazing and the staff attentive. My new fav!!!
Perfect in every way.
The food was very greasy for my taste but I am vegan so my choices were limited
John was our wait person & he was awesome!
Birthday, food was mediocre, service was just barely service. I should have just stayed home an ordered In !
Food and presentation were tremendous!! Filet mignon...spicy creamy shrimp ..:lobster fried rice and the Grand Marnier shrimp were off the chart to just name a few of my favorite dishes. The staff and manager were exceptional and accommodating. We will definitely be back !
